Thank you for choosing Snappic, we have a fantastic printing solution which our customers love. You can print wirelessly or wired with Snappic, however you do require a PC or Mac to run the print server app. Let's get started.

Wireless printing with Windows or Mac

What you need 

  • Snappic Print server 
  • Windows PC/device or Mac 
  • Bonjour if you are using a windows PC/tablet
  • Hotspot (or any WiFi network) this does not require internet or data it just needs the network that the hotspot creates to communicate.
    Please note we do not recommend using the wifi supplied at the venue as the connection can have a security setting that blocks the communication between the iPad and print server. 
  • iPad running Snappic
  • Any printer connected to the PC or Mac

Step 1. Download the Snappic print server to your PC or Mac. You can find it on the resources tab on your dashboard. 

Step 2. For windows -Install bonjour on that PC if it is not already installed - Bonjour for windows
Mac - Doesn't require bonjour

Step 3. Now make sure you do not have any firewalls on the Windows PC as they will block communication with the iPad.

Step 4. Connect your printer via USB to the PC or Mac and make sure it is set as a default and powered on.

Step 5. Make sure that the iPad and Windows PC/MAC you are using are both connected to the same hotspot/wifi connection.

Step 6. Open the print server on your PC or Mac and configure the printer for Standard and Strip prints.

Step 7. Once the Print server is open and running you will go onto the iPad open the event you wish to use and click the "configure printer" button. It should come up with the print server (wireless). You simply select it and click done.

Step 8. Start Photo booth or Sharing station and test if the printing icon appears.

  • Snappic Print server
